#sol18 March 2 Up Up Up Up

Slice of LIfe  I am participating in the March Slice of Life Challenge: A slice a day for all of March.  You should do it too!  Thank you, Two Writing Teachers! Readers, check out their site, and start slicing!

I wake up at 2:30* to the sound of a sick kid. We clean kid, clean sheets, clean rug. Then, I try to settle him back to sleep next to me, and try to fall back to sleep

Up at 3:40

Up at 4:30

Up at 5:30

Up at 6:30

Up at 7:30 – This time to H holding my laptop in front of my face, “Want to read my slice**?”

*All times approximate, I have very little recollection of the details in the middle of the night.

**H’s slice posted here with his permission.

  1. Oh, those middle of the night wake-ups (PLURAL) sound brutal. I had one wake-up last night & that was more than enough.

    So happy to see you back this March, Ona!

  2. UGH! Sick kids are terrible sleep disruptors. It’s exhausting to be up with them all night, and yet so important to still be patient. Hope he’s feeling better now!

  3. Not a good night, but at least you both got a slice out of it! Love his reference to Creech’s work!

  4. Poor kiddo! Hope you all get a good night sleep tonight and everyone is feeling better! And again, love H’s slice!!! Love That Dog is one of my favorites! What a great mentor text idea!
